I can't currently recommend any software for the 7500 if you have a CT3 interface in your router (as most of the ones I manage do) that supports IPv6. The next Cisco release of 12.2S (it will likely be called 12.2(18)S should have all the important IPv6 features that would be necessary for a larger scale deployment (eg: OSPFv3) of IPv6 services. If you're a customer of AS2914 and interested in IPv6, you should send us a note email@example.com, and we can get things configured fairly quickly. I am seeing at peak 1Mb+ on some of our IPv6 locations (mostly outside the US) but the trend does appear to be upwards. I know that other providers (Sprint, Hurricane Electric [i keep getting those yellow postcards at home], to name a few) have IPv6 services currently available to customers. It seems fairly easy to get a /48 allocation, so if you think you might go IPv6 in the next few years, it's worthwhile to set up a spare 26xx/36xx at least to tunnel the traffic with. (I have also had good results with 12.3(1a) releases). - Jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from firstname.lastname@example.org clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
